Database Backups

/ 2 May 2007

In both AB and iCal there’s a “Backup Database” option in the “File” menu. This is helpful for a couple of reasons, the first is obvious, as a on-disk backup of the database underlying the app. The second is as an easy way to transfer those app’s data from one mac to another mac. Even though I backup my whole mac once a week I still make once a month database backups of these two apps just to have as a way of keeping those databases safer and their backups easier to revert back to.
